When you know your body type you can stop being someone else
Jo Formosa is an Ayurvedic expert… and the life force of Health Dynamics 360
At the heart and soul of Health Dynamics 360 is Jo Formosa, a woman who has forged a new path in regards to the provision of Ayurvedic medicine in Australia and across the globe.
And in the Beginning…
For Jo, it started with being an Olympic hopeful. Jo had trained many years and while she endured her fair share of sport’s injuries, representing Australia at the Olympics was within reach. Then, a serious back injury shattered Jo’s Olympic dreams, and changed the plot of her life entirely. Jo quickly realised that acupuncture brought her faster relief and recovery times than more traditional physical rehab. While the results were not enough to reopen the road to an Olympic medal, they did become the reason Jo began to study natural medicine.
Jo Formosa is an engaging and inspiring practitioner and International speaker in Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Remedial theraphy and Neuro-strategies.
She set up one of the first Ayurvedic clinics in Australia and has a strong record in helping guide patients back to health through her multi-pronged, and practical, approach to healing.
Specialising in serious health conditions – from cancer and digestive disorders to cardiovascular disease, diabetes and autoimmune problems – she has a knack for intuitively understanding the body and reversing even the most complex problems.
For Jo, real healing is done on an individual level and she’s not afraid of disrupting the traditional models. In our busy, fast-paced, and fast-food culture, too often seemingly-small, or niggling, health problems that arise in everyday life are ignored – these become the building blocks of serious disease. The key is treating the cause and not the symptoms.
With 70-80 per cent of your immunity located in the digestive system and food intolerance and complaints such as irritable bowel syndrome on the rise in Australia and throughout the Western World, Jo is a strong advocate for gut health.
She set up the 28-Day Detox & Re-Set Program and 7-Day Gut Health Program which has seen people around the world turn their life around by following her simple, but practical advice on how to eat and live, according to their body type.
Together with internationally-acclaimed wealth expert Roger James Hamilton, she has also co-created Health Dynamics – the world’s first system to link your health (what naturally gets your body in flow), your wealth (what naturally gets your mind in flow) and your happiness (what naturally gets your spirit into flow). This allows users to find out where they are on the health spectrum – and ultimately make their way higher, to better health and wellbeing.
Another one of her programs – the 5:2 Technology Detox helps children, teenagers and adults break a destructive cycle of dependence on technology. The program has been featured in media across Australia and the UK, including 10-minute national segment on ABC TV and a double page feature in Australia’s widest selling newspaper, the Sunday Telegraph and several BBC radio interviews.
Jo is regularly featured in a wide-range of prominent media outlets including the BBC, ABC, Today Show, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Good Health Magazine, The Sunday Telegraph and more.
Jo also knows first-hand what it’s like to be in ill health, having seriously ruptured a disc in her back on her way to compete in the 2000 Sydney Olympics as a hammer thrower. This incident changed the course of her life and lead her on a health trajectory which has seen her help thousands of people on the delicate journey back to health.
Some of the topics she speaks on include:
1 Roadmap to better health – When you understand the stages of disease you can find the quickest way to get back on the path to health and wellness.
2 Understanding your body type – We all have different body types. The best way to achieve optimum health and vitality is by becoming aware of your unique body type. This is your personal roadmap to life.
3 Dealing with stress – Corporate health and wellness strategies to increase productivity in your team and, in turn, increase profit. Having your team know the profile of each other gives you a new conversation and understanding to help each other and the company win.
4 Detox to better health – Detoxing through Ayurvedic practices is one of the most tried and tested methods to help rid our bodies of unwanted waste and toxins.
5 Why your digestive system improves your health – With 90 per cent of ill-health starting in your gut, healthy digestion is a critical component of overall health.
6 Why we get chronic pain – Understand the cause of your chronic pain and learn how to correct the imbalances before they manifest.
7 Food as medicine – Learning how to use food as your medicine is an effective and easy way to help you achieve the optimum weight you desire, now and for the long term.
